One bite at a time, of course!

Michael and Rebecca realized that their previous fundraising listing was too overwhelming, trying to do too many things at once with a donation goal that was too high for a starting position. Bearing that in mind, we’ve decided to break down what we want to do into more manageable chunks that can show our supporters what we’ve done and give them more immediate returns on their investments in us.

Goal #1: Completing our educations

Michael is in the process of completing his Master’s of Education in Counseling degree at UMSL. Fall 2018 will mark Michael entering the practicum portion of his studies, which will require him to provide counseling services during the semester with no financial compensation for his work. While he is looking forward to doing the work for which he was called to become a counselor, he is worried about providing for his family while doing the work that he loves.

Rebecca is in the process of completing her Associate of Applied Science in Health Information Technology at STLCC. Once she has completed her degree (she’s hoping it will be no later than December 2019), she plans to get her certification through AHIMA so she can work as a coder until we’re ready to open up the clinic. Rebecca is currently carrying a 3.84/4.0 average and is a member of Phi Theta Kappa, the national honor society.
